St Laurence's church, Church Stretton

At St Laurence’s, we seek to serve God in our local community and share the good news of Jesus with all to fulfill our mission of Making Jesus Known.

As an Anglican church our aim is to meet the needs of all Christians, from those who prefer traditional Church of England services to others who feel more comfortable with a more informal approach. We seek to be adventurous in exercising our faith, while conserving the best of the past.

The church

People have been worshipping God in St. Laurence’s for over 1000 years and there is a rich history of God working out his purposes in and around these rolling hills.

The church is largely 13th century, with exterior carvings including St Laurence holding a gridiron, and a rare sheila-na-gig, probably of Saxon date. 

The interior was reordered in 2010 and the features include interesting stained glass, a grid iron with twisted pieces of copper and modern banners illustrating the seven great “I am” statements of Jesus.

The local community

We are a friendly church, and many of our congregation are drawn in from the surrounding towns and villages as well as Church Stretton itself.
